Positive Negative Neutral Advice
Highly recommend attending another school.Bright
Highly recommend attending another school. Extremely disorganized with student files to the point where the money is not worth it. You are another number. There is no helpful advice, each staff always tells you to head somewhere else or to ask for someone else, even if you are in the right department. The tuition is not worth the education. Half of the professors just give you terrible grades because they have been teaching for so long. The list can go on about the negative things about this school, such as they are actually not environmentally friendly. During a drought, UCD stated to use less water but at 3am-5am and 7-9pm the water sprinklers were running. The only thing good is that you can do what you want around campus (freedom), and there is a good gym. The students working in stores and in the UCD staff when handling money are dishonest. I have had my credit card number stolen from the book store a countless number of times.

College definitely helped me. I wish I could have gotten a higher degree and in another field.

Question
Very cut-throat.Not so brightChemical Engineering
Very cut-throat. I thought that I'd learn more about my major, but instead I've learned how much knowing the right people can either make or break your gpa. Oh also, you've got to hide your homework from the kid that will take pictures of it when you're not looking. Also, last quarter, someone stole the homework that should've been returned back to us.
